I did it once and I'll never do it again

Recommended Posts

Hey, you know what's funny? I'm on my way back from that interview right now and there is a snowstorm in virgina right now. I have been sitting here in the middle of the freeway for the past 2 hours with my car turned off. I just opened my laptop to watch a video or something and there seems to be an open connection. Must be from a nearby car. I hope I can get off of this highway soon because I'm getting really bored. This is something I definitely don't want to do again.

EDIT: Looks like they shutdown the interstate. Kind of stupid that they trapped us all here. What if a zombie herd comes after me?

Update: Finished God of War III - not sure that I like the ending. Origins games next up - when I feel like it.

Anyway, as I edit my scripts for my (eventual) upcoming show, I remind myself of another instance. I like the LEGO Star Wars games, but in the original, I dread the vehicle stages (Mos Espa Podrace, Geonosis Gunship Battle) because they can be unforgiving. I'm glad they moved the original stages to an optional area in the Complete Saga package and replaced them with decent versions.

Also, I am definitely not going to even try to get through Super Story Mode. Ever.

if a game starts becoming a chore rather than fun that's usually the point when I stop playing it completely. who gives a fuck about collecting all of the stars or getting a certain time in a race unless there's an actual reward or it's fun to do.

Pretty much my philosophy. Rare ruined me for collectathon's back on the 64. I got 105% or whatever it was on DKC64, and now any collectable without a really nice reward I ignore.

Other than that, I beat Perfect Dark on Perfect mode. I've talked to a handful of other people who have done that. Was mostly a lot of fun doing it at the time, but now I really feel no need to play most games, especially FPS's, on the harder or hardest difficulties.

The Grumble Volcano shortcut during an online race: http://youtu.be/joMbFFk6WZ8

When playing online, you only have one shot to get up there, and I managed to pull it off on the first try. I only did it once because it's really a dick move, but that particular race was full of cheaters/hackers anyway.

And I pulled off another shortcut during a time trial: http://youtu.be/nxrsW9abfAw?t=2m9s

Ugh, somewhere around there I stopped the simulator challenges. There were what, like 26, 28 challenges? I think I three-starred up until 24 or 25, when they started just making the challenges lame, with multiple PerfectSims (cheating bastards, those guys) against you. Stupid. As it was, I got up to rank 5 or 6. Multi was fun on that game, but I was really about the campaign.

I did it, but it took a long time and more patience than I'd have now. The perfectsims just plain sucked because they could track you through the walls.

I said that I would never play dark souls again, but I'm actually doing it!!! But I deleted the firmware update so I could do the infinite souls glitch. Looking behind me, my souls are going up at a rate of 4,000/sec and I'm currently at level 130 with 11.5 million souls and counting.

Basically, I feel that this game owes me something for all that hard work and that abysmal ending. I'm getting my revenge.

What? Don't look at me like that. I already beat the game without any cheap tricks so I've got nothing to prove. I'll probably leave it for another couple of hours before stopping there. Should be a lot more fun this second time through.

EDIT: Up to 20 million souls. Think I'll stop after another 5 million.

I bought a game made by Disney.

Unless it's The Incredibles, then that is a lesson learned too many times that took too long to get to my thick head that a Disney game will never be good.

The older games for the Genesis or whatever don't count because they were actually made by Capcom or something.

Examples of me thinking "what the crap was I thinking" was blowing money on the Tangled video game (WTF?) and I got Ratatouille game (and that one wasn't nearly as bad but still crap).

Still asking myself why I wasted 20 bucks on Tangled. Not as bad as some really awful games out there, but the game was so obviously made for 5 year olds. The hours of gameplay is 7 hours. 7. hours. And it is the absolute easiest game on this Earth that was rated E and not eC.

I dunno, Split/Second was pretty good. Shame there won't be a sequel.

Playing Super Meat Boy all the way through. I love the game, and looove the soundtrack, but I raged too, too, too too many times playing through it. Partially because my space bar didn't always accept input (I needed to replace my keyboard, bad) thus increasing my deaths by about 20%, but also just pure rage.

What the... You played through it with the keyboard? Bravo, sir, bravo.

^ This. Such an amazing game, later shamelessly ripped off by Ridge Racer Unbounded.

Speaking of Split Second Velocity:

. Best enjoyed with choppy framerate and a broken left analog stick...

Also, Hardcore mode in Dead Space 2. Trying to keep your 3 saves for the later parts of the game. Dying like a moron in a vacuum.

Apparently in Dead Space 3 you have to beat the game without dying once to complete Hardcore. Game is supposedly 20 hrs long. :dstrbd:

Yeah, I did, lol. I didn't even realize it was that big of an achievement until I looked at some forums - I thought the whole "you should really use a controller!" messages at the beginning of each load-up was some sort of joke on the part of the creators.

That's how pros play. Seriously though, to me the keyboard is more accurate for the type of movement in Meat Boy.
